Description: Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described...
Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described as the perfect home for a caveman. Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering Karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals. Wildflowers are abundant around the precinct from September to November. Located 22km south of Margaret River.

It is certainly big. However if you're pressed for time I would go to Lake and/or Jewel caves in preference.

These caves are fantastic. I appreciated the sturdily built walkways so that you didn't disturb the formations. The audio was great, though sometimes it could have been a bit more specific. It was well worth the enormous amount of steps to get out. Easy access, though you do need to a reasonable level of fitness as you go up and... More

These caves in this region are just glorious. The pure beauty beneath the ground was just amazing. I would definitely recommend seeing at least one cave on your next tour down south.

Enter at ground level, easy access with loads of steps, very good cometary. Large space with good lighting. The exit was up 160 stairs.

Got the ultimate cave package and glad we did. Each cave has is own unique awesomeness and of course this one lived up to its name. I rated the other 2 caves 5 stars but dropped a star on this one only because of one simple issue that could easily be prevented. Getting into this cave is the easiest but... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed my visit to the cave. My husband and I were trying to kill some time before waiting for family to arrive in Margaret River. We probably spent approx 45-60 minutes looking around the cave, taking our time and listening to the audio headset included in the admission price. It was really... More

We hadn't initially intended to visit the caves but decided to as we drove past and thank goodness we did. This cave is huge and quite beautiful and the audio guide extremely informative. We did the self guide which was good for us. We then went to the Lake Cafe and looked out from the viewing deck.

Good use of self guided audio headset tours. This is a larger cave compared to the lake cave and the self talking tour prevents over crowding at one point and allows you to enjoy the cave at your own pace!

You can have a short walk and a long then longer walks. You walk without a guide but take ear phones and player. The attendant explains everything, and everything is explained on the way through the cave. My husband went through and really enjoyed it. He took lots of photos very beautiful. As I am disabled I was only able... More

This is one of a number of caves in the area. It is easily accessible, and unlike some others, the pathway is not as steep. Well designed and clear walkways, and an excellent self guided audio program makes the visit impressive.
